Climate Change and Behavioral Economics: Implications for Policy

Howard Kunreuther
James D.  Dinan Professor of Decision Sciences and Policy
Co-Director of Wharton Risk Management and Decision Processes Center
Wharton School  University of Pennsylvania
  We face challenges in dealing with potentially catastrophic events associated with climate change. Most individuals do not think about investing in energy efficient measures to reduce global warming or undertaking protective actions to reduce damage to their homes from future floods or hurricanes until after a disaster occurs. I will use concepts from behavioral economics and psychology to highlight why we ignore these risks and recommend public-private sector partnerships that provide economic incentives for taking steps now rather than waiting until it is too late.

Unbroken Glass

Documentary Film Screening and Q&A with the Director, Dinesh Sabu Twenty years after the death of his parents, Indian-American filmmaker Dinesh Sabu begins a journey to finally piece together their story. Uncovering a silenced family history of mental illness, Sabu confronts the legacy of having a schizophrenic mother who died by suicide, the reality of growing up an orphaned immigrant, and the trauma of these events. Raised by his older siblings, Sabu had little idea who his parents were or where he came from. Through making Unbroken Glass, he attempts to put together their story and his own.  Preston Hall 110
